Something to
Think About
THE JOB AND THE MAN
'By?. A. Walker ,
ONE of the greatest troubles with
the average man Is that he does
not get excited frequently enough.
Excitement Is only MULTIPLIED
ENTHUSIASM.
The man who lacks enthusiasm
doesn't get far, whatever road he trav
els. One of the chief faults of a snail la
that It never has the sensation of ex
citement It crawls along in a seemingly aim
less fashion, and having reached the
nowhere for which It was headed. It
stops to contemplate Its effectiveness.
Nobody Is ever Interested In a snail,
and only the dullard copies, him.
If you want to see enthusiasm and
excitement In animal life, watch an
ant Everything Interests him. Every
thing has a weaning for him. Every
thing be sees or feels Is a matter of
Investigation and study.
He Is excited all the time and ac
complishes something every minute.
Every boy and every man ought to
be excited about what he Is doing.
He should be so intensely Interested
In It, so thoroughly In love with the
task and Its accninpllshment, that Its
finish should Hud him thrilled with
enthusiasm, ,
Can you Imagine Edison working
without enthusiasm and excitement?
Can you conceive the feverish eager
ness with which Galileo worked
through the night on that first crude
telescope and with what excitement
he took his first look through It toward
the far-off sturs? Yet that telescope
was not os powerful as the opera
glass you carry to the theater.
Can you Imagine with what excite
ment Mine. Curie looked upon the
first tiny speck of radium which she
bad distilled from the tons of mate
rial which concenleil 1(7
THE GLORY OK LABOR IS ITS
ACCOMPLISHMENT.
The real wages of work Is the satis
faction of production.
The man who makes a machine of
himself, who flails no Interest and no
basis of enthusiasm In his dally task
Is little better than the ox.
There Is no lnhor so menial and no
task so hard that It has not In It a
reason for enthusiasm.
The scrub woman whose knees are
calloused and whose arms ache from
her lowly Inhors may still find a dis
tinct pleasure and an actual enthusi
asm when she sees the glistening
cleanliness acompllsbed by her hands.
The teamster can be enthusiastic
about his horses and his wagon. The I
office boy can get excited about the I
rush of business where he Is employed. I
Everybody has some reason to get en
thusiastic and excited about their
work. If they have no reason they
are either following the wrong voca
tion or they are looking on the world
and Its doings with distorted vision.
If yonr present work doesn't en
thur you. If you cannot get excited
and happy about It, find something
else to do. Oet another Job. Find
something that will stir you up and
rouse your mind and hurry your fingers
and leave you, when the day Is done,
anxious for tomorrow and the bigger
accomplishment that It will make pos
sible. Don't be content to be a snail.
A SNAIL NEVER GETS ANY
WHERE. .
